Blue vs. Yellow

My sister and I are doing comparisions of colors. I've been assigned blue and yellow.

Not too sure where to start but yellow is definatly a more upbeat, fresh, cheerful color. Blue is often the word used to describe being down and out, and some shades of it can be cold feeling. Although I like the color blue better as a color...its the color of a clear day and the ocean, yellow is just a little to bright. I like what yellow represents though...sunshine, cheerfulness, lemons, and sunflowers. But all in all I like a coral color best!

This is what happens when there is nothing to do on a tuesday evening sitting around Mom and Dad's. If you'd like to check out Shelby's her site is...http://shelby-olson.blogspot.com/

I've just realized that this is the first time I've wrote about something other than Zara. Clearly I need to get a life/hobby/something.

Garrett has been in between jobs now for a couple weeks so lucky for me that usually means that he's home a lot more. He has been getting up with Zara and I get to sleep in and he has been playing with her all day while I sit on the couch doing my sudoku. Needless to say I've been loving it. I don't think Garrett's minded either because Zara will now go to him without putting up a big fight. She's gone from being a Momma's girl to liking Dad too. She'll even give him cuddles and she cries when he leaves. This is what it was like when Garrett wanted a hug from Zara before.

And this is what it's like now.

Sleeping Beauty

I've always left the door cracked just a bit whenever Zara goes down for a nap. I've always gone in to check on her to make sure she is sleeping and has some covers on but now that she is older I just go in to see what kind of position she has managed to get herself into. I usually take the camera just in case its worthy of a picture. Here are a few shots that I've taken lately. The last is the after effects of sleeping...bedhead.

Anyone that knew me as a child knows that I talked non-stop. I'd keep cousins up until all hours the night, keep my family entertained on long road trips and pretty much control the dinner conversation. Well now I think its my payback now. Zara really likes to talk...all day long she blabbles about. I got a video to prove it. For all those I drove insane as a child...ENJOY!
